definition A neutrino generated in the Sun. The main source of solar neutrinos is the proton-proton chain of reactions, in which an energy of +28 MeV is shared between the reaction products. These are called low-energy neutrinos. There are less important reactions in the Sun yielding a smaller flux of higher energy neutrinos. The solar neutrino flux can be estimated from the solar luminosity.
